Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3—This follow-up to Fleming and Karas's Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! (S & S, 2002) shares many of that title's fine qualities: lighthearted conflict, lively language, and those mischievous, childlike bunnies. With winter coming, Mr. McGreely snuggles up with a good book, but "Knocka-knocka-knocka!," three little rabbits come begging at his door. Since he won't let them in, they sneak in through the mail slot ("Tippy-tippy-tippy, hide!"). Each successive night, as the snow falls and the wind howls, the "pesky pufftails" find a new way to enter. Each morning, the man discovers evidence of their trespassing-footprints on a chair, nose smudges in his tub, even "bunny drops" on his pillow! Yet, despite his ever-expanding search, which is captured in cumulative verses ("over and under,/above and below,/here and there,/high and low"), he cannot find the critters. Sealing up his home with boards and bricks, he triumphantly waits out the season in peace. When spring arrives, it's the bunnies who have the last laugh: they're outside munching flowers while Mr. McGreely is trapped indoors. Done in gouache, acrylic, and loose pencil lines, the folksy artwork is full of changing perspectives and charming detail, and captures all of the action with warmth and humor. Perfect for winter read-alouds, this sassy sequel will please fans of the first book.—Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

From Booklist

In this follow-up to the well-received Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! (2002), Fleming continues her farcical tale of man against rabbits. Once again, a trio of "pesky pufftails" disturbs Mr. McGreely. This time, they are intent on sneaking into his cozy home for winter. After finding rabbit fur in his breakfast and on his favorite chair, Mr. McGreely tries everything to keep the bunnies out. He nails up his mail slot and windows, covers his chimney, and finally, after waking up to a pile of droppings on his pillow, bricks in his doors. Barricaded, he settles in for the winter, but when spring comes, he discovers his error: he is blocked in, while bunnies frolic on his warm, green lawn. A few references toMuncha! may lose kids who don't know the first title, and this story isn't as strong and cohesive as the original. Still, Karas' amusing paint-and-pencil illustrations make the most of the slapstick, and the irresistible rhyme and onomatopoeia ("Tippy-tippy-tippy, wiggle, through the mail slot. Tippy-jiggle.") will read-aloud well to a rowdy crowd. Gillian Engberg

Borrowed from local library to read to our grandson while he was visiting us. Just loved this book and so did grandson. Purchased a used one (in like new condition) and am very pleased with the "like new condition" purchased at a fraction of the new price. First time I bought a used book online, but will not be afraid to do so in future. Will be sent to grandson as part of his Valentine's gift from us so he may continue to enjoy those bunnies!

My three year old loves this book, especially when the bunnies leave bunny droppings on Mr.McGreely's pillow. She loves to "read" it aloud to herself after we put her to bed, and it's so funny to hear her over the baby monitor saying "Some bunnies been in my house!" We haven't read Candace Fleming's first book "Muncha!Muncha!Muncha!" but I'm eager to read the prequel. The end of the story was a little confusing for my daughter, because it ends in sounds and pictures, with no written conclusion (in trying to keep the bunnies out, Mr.McGreely ends up locking himself into the house and he can't get out in the spring), so I used to have to explain the ending each time to my daughter. The rest of the story is great however and is sure to keep your child riveted.

I am new to ordering on-line but I have to say I am very happy with my purchase. The book I ordered was in great condiction. I was surprised to open the package and find that for the great price I paid, it was also a hard covered book as well. Thank you!

I was so happy when this book came out since the young children I teach absolutely love "Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!" In this followup, it's winter and the bunnies are cold - they keep sneaking into the grumpy old man's house to get warm. Whenever we ay "tippy, tippy, tippy, hide!" we "tiptoe" with our fingers on the floor and then quick hide our hands behind our backs. Kids look forward to this and it adds to their engagement with the story. This is really a fun one - you won't be disappointed!

Tippy tippy hide and Muncha muncha muncha have become some of our favorite bedtime stories for our three little girls. We checked it out at the library at first and had so much fun with them that we couldn't resist purchasing them. They are just cute funny stories of farmer verses bunnies. Adorable!!
